Magique at Faena, Miami, Date Night Outfit

The Faena Hotel has brought an entirely new feel to Miami's nightlife and arts scene.  I mean, when Baz Lurhman helps design the interiors of your hotel, I think you're in good shape! Just saying. Faena, and its umbrella developments that span over six blocks of Miami beach water front, have been credited with breathing new life to the area south of 30th & Collins. Faena Theater is located inside the hotel. It's a throwback to the 1970's, when dinner theaters were having their moment (that's what Wikipedia says). It's a pretty interesting place. Every now and then, we make our way to the hotel and theater, to check out what new shows are playing. It makes for a great date night.

Playing currently is Kevin & Caruso's Magique; a not-so-ordinary magic show, filled with illusions, handmade costumes, and lots of sequins (on show girls). It's set to the tune of some 90's jams, with some current Top Ten stuff throw in, which makes it fun. Because the dinner theater is small and intimate, you're guaranteed a good seat. It's a fun and unique experience that I recommend for a fun night out. 

Ticket Info:
Bonus: two drinks, complimentary with each ticket purchase.
Magique runs through the end of may, every Tuesday and Sunday.
Tickets: available here.$65 adults / $45 for children (although, it's not much of a gig for kids in my opinion) or you can e-mail for reservations: faenatheater@faena.com.

Laser Facial Risks And How A Caudalie Facial Helped Save My Skin

laser facial side effects
As bloggers, we are oftentimes invited to try out new local experiences. I write about fashion and beauty, and as a result, I'm always scoping out the newest skincare/beauty launches and treatments in Miami. In February, I had a "laser facial." Lured by the promise of renewed, glowing skin, I went in for my appointment with high hopes. The truth is, I should never have done anything because there was nothing wrong with it. At the time, I had a great routine going; my skin was already healthy and hydrated. I've never had an issue with dryness...until this "facial." The results were terrible. As you can see, I ended up with squares imprinted on my face, from the laser nozzle. After the red square patterns faded, I was left with extreme dry patches all over. I also have lots of texture that I never had before. 

It's now May, three months later, and my skin is JUST getting back to normal. 
I credit Vanessa (a great aesthetician) over at Caudalie Brickell City Centre, because she gave me an incredible, hydrating facial. I have plans to go back next months! Below, I've got a full breakdown of the products she used, plus outfit details.

Victoria Beckham x Target: Outfit

By now, you've heard that the quality of the Victoria Beckham for Target line is great. It definitely is.  I'm bringing you a quick outfit post today wearing a VB for Target top. The top is a nice, thick material. It doesn't wrinkle (maaajor plus), and has cute fringe detailing along the hem. It's Available online, at Target.


My shoes are also from Target! I can't believe how comfortable these Mossimo Daphne platform sandals are. I complain endlessly about shoes being uncomfortable. Who would have thought that a $29 pair of shoes would be easier on my feet than designer heels?


All of the details on my accessories, are down below. Thanks for reading. xx

Kari Gran Lip Whip - Lip Swatches

Today's post is all about the natural and hydrating, Kari Gran Lip Whips, some of the most nourishing colored glosses that I've come across.  Kari Gran has a back-to-basics approach to skincare and makeup. Named after the brand's founder, they seek to combine a love of makeup and beauty with a no-fuss, chemical free list of ingredients that make for a great line.

No.7 Match Made Makeup

No.7 products
Drugstore makeup finds
As far as affordable makeup goes, No.7 is a great line to check out. The brand is established, and reasonably priced. They recently launched the Match Made app and product line, a group of products that are tailor-made for your skin tone and type.  Download the Match Made app online, and get started. Here's how it works:
  • Pick up the Match Made card at your local drug store (free)
  • Download the Match Made app (also free) 
  • Rinse your face of all makeup 
  • Hold the card up to the side of your face
  • Snap a photo
  • A few shots later, and your done!
  • You can also find a Walgreens store that matches you right inside the store. 
The app reveals the correct, color matched No.7 products for your skin tone, including foundation and lipstick.  I think this is a great idea because part of what makes shopping for drugstore makeup difficult is that you can't test it out. With the app, there's no more guess work.
